Introduction

Five ordinary individuals have been chosen to become the next generation of gods. Waking up to an ordinary morning with godlike powers. No warning, no explanation, no directions on what to do. Just a mysterious dream & the powers of a god. Fully aware of their godhood upon awaking one thought echos through their heads. They must find the others. Perhaps together they can unlock the mystery of their shared dream & new found divinity. Behold, the new gods are rising & the world will never be the same. This is a roleplay where players have the power to warp reality. It is a collaborative roleplay, which means there is no gamemaster or single person in charge of the story. The story can go in any direction the players wish it to. If you wish to create an alternate dimension to act as your characters godly realm then go for it. If you wish to create an army of monsters to wipe out humanity, go for it. If you want to create an new race of intelligent beings, do it. keep in mind, the other gods may not approve and could retaliate. Perhaps a mutual peace and understanding could be established. However, be sure to follow the rules and not break them.

FORBIDDEN POWERS
  • Time Travel, Control & Manipulation This power is beyond the abilities of any deity. That means you can not erase or change the past, but you can change the future. However once something is done, it is done & cannot be undone. So be careful what you do with your godly powers.
  • Creating New Gods Only the five deities have the power to break the laws of physics & become gods. Ascending a mortal to godhood requires the collective power & approval of all five deities.
  • Omnipotence/Omniscience/Omnipresence Nothing is all powerful, not even the five deities. Even the deity of balance who is master of all knowledge is not all knowing all the time. Think of it as having a vast library filled with all the knowledge of the universe. Sure the deity of balance can find a specific book whenever they want about any subject, but they cant know everything at all times. They can access the library whenever they want but can only read a single book at a time. Same thing goes for the other gods, EVERYONE must have some sort of limitation.
  • Creating/Destroying Matter Out of all the Cosmic Laws this is the most important. All gods, not even the deities of order or chaos can create or destroy matter. If you wish to create something, then it must be done using what is already there. A god can not create something from nothing. You must use what is available in the universe to create or destroy.
  • Resurrection Yes, it is possible, BUT there are rules. Any deity or mortal that wishes to resurrect a mortal must have permission from the deity of death as well as the deity of Order. Which makes resurrection an extremely rare occurrence.



    UNIVERSAL DEITY POWERS
    (Common to all deities)

    • Will Powered Flight
    • Immortality/Eternal Youth
    • Instant Teleportation
    • Phasing/Invisibility/Levitation (Ghost/Spirit Powers)
    • Divine Strength/Durability (Open To Interpretation)
    • Divine Speed/Reflexes (Open To Interpretation)
    • Divine Senses/Agility (Open To Interpretation)
    • Psychic (Telekinesis, Telepathy, Clairvoyance, Empathy)
    • Dimensional Travel (Some are harder to get into then others)


Image

In addition to these powers each deity has their own domain specific powers. These powers are open to interpretation.



CHARACTER TEMPLATE
Truth is that there is no specific template. HOWEVER there are some requirements.
1) You character must include a name, which deity they are, as well as basic information such as age, height, weight, etc.
2) BE DETAILED, I enjoy a detailed character profile, tell me your characters personality, history, etc. Perhaps they are not as ordinary as we think...
3) Keep it neat & organized... I don't want to have to edit your character profile because it looks sloppy.

Toggle Rules

RULES ARE SIMPLE
1] No modding/controlling other peoples characters.
2] There is no specific post length however I expect good effort and detailed posts.
3] If you are not willing or able to post at least once a day then don't join.
4] This is a collaborative roleplay, meaning there is no gamemaster & the roleplayers have the power to direct the storyline.
5] NO CONTRADICTIONS, I hate them, they suck, stick to the story & be aware of everything that has happened so far.
6] There is A LOT of freedom that I am giving the players in this world. If you are not mature enough to use that freedom wisely then this roleplay will end badly.
7] Keep grammar & spelling mistakes to a minimum. Trust me I understand, I'm AWEFUL. Just do the best you can and keep your posts detailed & neat.
8] If you wish to create a new location then contact me. New locations could possibly include godly realms such as an afterlife/underworld or perhaps a heavenly realm or a netherworld, etc. Could be anything.
9] NPC are to be controlled by the player that creates them as well as anyone whom they give permission.

THE DREAM
You find yourself in bed screaming in pain. Every bone in your body constantly breaking and then healing themselves. Your blood begins to boil just as your entire body begins to radiate a blinding light that causes everything the burn. Finally when the pain disappears and the light fades away, you take a breath. But not before you are consumed by terror and despair. Two figures stand at the other end of your bed. One glowing as bright as the sun, the other shrouded in darkness. They never speak a word. Instead both of them lift their right hands and point at you. The being of light with a face of sadness, the other with an evil laugh that causes a shiver to run down your spine. Then you close your eyes and awake...

Its been about a month since Titus awoke to a splitting headache. The spirit of knowledge pouring into his head, taking residence in the depths of his mind. For weeks Titus has been consolidating his divine powers. Although he had little to no memory of being possessed he did notice a letter in his hands when he shut the door in his head. A letter apparently written by himself for himself. Even though his body housed a 2nd entity, it quickly became apparent that this "Spirit of Knowledge" was extremely useful. Leaving written notes so as to pass small pieces of information to him. However all of the notes seemed to relate to one thing. Finding the others... Whoever "The Others" happen to be.

As Titus closed his eyes, he imagined being at Stonehenge. An ancient historical site in England that he had visited with his adoptive parents during senior year. They called it the trip of a lifetime. Titus couldn't agree more. Suddenly a gust of wind rushed past him, blowing through his hair. When He opened his eyes, not 100 feet in front of him was Stonehenge. Titus let out a short laugh. Even a month after his ascendancy to god hood, he was still reveling at the things he was able to do. If only his family could see him now.

It was the dead of night in England. As Titus casually strolled over to the massive circle of stony pillars he took a deep breath of the cold & misty english air. Approaching the center of the ruins, he pulled a folded piece of paper out of his back pocket. One of the many notes left by the passenger in his head. Unfolding it slowly, Titus read the words once more. "Bluest Moon--Darkest Night---Ancient Circle---Psychic Beacon." Titus narrowed his eyes at the note then placed it back in his pocket and scanned the area. Sometimes he wished that the spirit would give more detail, but that was how all the notes where. Vague & mysterious snipets of information.

Never the less, it was clear he had a job to do. It took him several days to finally discover what a psychic beacon was. Titus opened his mind and allowed it to wander. Out of pure willpower, He closed his eyes and turned his face to the sky. Marking the ground with his own personal psychic beacon. Calling out with his mind and spirit to any and all people that were like him. everyone who had shared the dream that changed all their lives. Then he whispered to himself. Slowly at 1st, then louder and faster until finally he was shouting at the top of his lungs.

"COME TO ME"

Cyrus was sitting at his computer, staring blankly as he scrolled through facts and figures, not that this was unusual. No, before "The Dream" as he liked to call it, he was often up late at night, reading through the news and stock market, but after it... It was as though he could comprehend the patterns inherent in any system, man-made or natural just by examining it long enough. Now, Cyrus had always considered himself smart, but this was on a whole other level.

Cyrus yawned and rubbed his eyes before looking at the clock. It was late. Thank God it was Summer. He paused, grinning at the irony. It was strange being given the powers of a god. While he enjoyed manipulating the elements and studying the patterns of reality, he had no idea just what he wanted to do. If only he could find the "others." If only....



"COME TO ME"




Cyrus stiffened. Was this what he was waiting for? He closed his eyes, tracking the words to their source. He grinned wryly at the source. Stonehenge, huh? He stood walked forward confidently, his familiar room vanishing only to be replaced by the iconic stone circle. He raised an eyebrow at the man waiting for him. Well, they couldn't both be sporting the rebel punk look, could they? He willed a change of clothes.

Image


"Ah, much better," Cy noted with a grin, "Not quite business formal or casual, but commanding enough, isn't it?"

He examined the man before him critically before frowning as he could not grasp the nature of the person before him. He cocked an eyebrow, "You are not a mortal. You are of a different Order. You are part of the Order, of course. All things are, but you are more... At last, someone like me. Perhaps together, we can bring about true Order..."

The moment Cyrus teleported to his location Titus could sense his presence. A gust of wind rushed through the ruins just as the newcomer walked into the middle of the circle. Titus opened his eyes and lowered his head back to eye level. He had no sense of urgency, patiently moving only when he needed to. With the bitter cold of the wind nipping at his face Titus examined the man and gave him a half smile. Meanwhile admiring how confident a demeanor he had. The man seemed to radiated with a sense of purpose. Titus was curious, and listened to him as he spoke only showing a minimal amount of emotion on his face. Hiding his emotions, a trick Titus learned decades ago.

"You are not mortal. You are of a different Order. You are part of the Order, of course. All things are, but you are more." Titus took in his words to heart. Processing what the man was trying to understand. Taking a few steps closer, advancing with caution but with a level of respect. "I am Titus, and yes your right, I am not human. Not anymore..." There was a brief pause before the other man began to speak again. "At last, someone like me. Perhaps together, we can bring about true Order..." Titus stop advancing and made eye contact. "That depends on your definition of true order." With that remark, Titus raised his right hand attempting a handshake with the stranger. "Perhaps you could enlighten me regarding this, True Order, you speak of."

It was late morning in Sydney, Australia and Valentina sat amongst American socialites atop a five star restaurant. Her classical white dress, matching headscarf and heels, along with her now-natural ability of persuasion, got her a seat amongst them, and it took only seconds before a man offered to buy her breakfast - to which she'd accept. His conversation wasn't all that interesting but he was nice enough that Valentina could maintain the casual smile on her face. However it was somewhat of a relief when a business call took him away from the table.

The restaurant was right on the water and after a few minutes of picking at her food Valentina walked over to the balcony and leaned down on it as she took in the view. The ocean was a true love for her and if it was night time she would have easily slipped out of her dress where she stood and will herself into the water.

As she watched the waves roll in and out Valentina's thoughts were suddenly interrupted by a voice calling out to her. "Come to me!"
The average person would have looked around them if they suddenly heard a voice yell out to them, even if it appeared to be in their head. Valentina however almost instantly sensed the divine connection and closed her eyes, quickly forming an image of Stonehenge and a figure standing near it in the dark. After a minute or two another figure appeared and the two began to converse. Valentina listened to them closely and while her interest was peaked she didn't budge from her current location.

"Perhaps you could enlighten me regarding this, True Order, you speak of." said the same masculine voice that originally called out to her, and before the other figure spoke up a gust of wind would blow past the two individuals and through a telepathic link Valentina would respond. "Speaking of being enlightened, please, enlighten me as to why i must come to you? Do i get a present of some sort if I show?" she teased, and the smirk forming on her face showcased the amusement she got from being cheeky. She was indeed interested in these two men who appeared to be like her, the "others" she subconsciously yearned to find after her dream, but even so she resisted the idea of being summoned.

Cyrus took the man's, Titus', hand in his own and shook it, "My name is Cyrus. As for my idea of true order..."

As he was about to continue, the two were interrupted by a new voice. He raised an eyebrow, taking in her appearance. She was that had joined their psychic link. An image of her blasted through his mind. A women in a white dress and naturally beautiful, he noted, but there was something more, augmenting it. It was power, but power quite different from his. He was intrigued.

"Speaking of being enlightened, please, enlighten me as to why i must come to you? Do i get a present of some sort if I show?" she teased with a smirk from her own amusement at her words. He laughed.

"I was getting to that, my dear," he replied with a smirk of his own, "If you two are anything like myself, you have been given power. Power enough to change this world. I... I suppose I identify with Order, but the current Order we are shackled with... It is a false one serving the corrupt, the foolish, and the lazy. We could change things. The world is ours to shape as we choose."

ImageTitus shook his hand and rewarded him with a rare but sincere smile. Then the man continued to speak. "My name is Cyrus. As for my idea of true order..." Suddenly a new voice echoed throughout their minds. An brief image of her flashed in his head. Just from his short glimpse of her he could sense she was going to be somewhat of a rebel. Titus grinned at her comment and looked down at the ground. She obviously had an attitude. A quality he always liked in a woman...

Titus listened as the seemingly well mannered Cyrus replied. Hm. Power enough to change the world... Titus was conflicted at the remark. Yes, the world was a harsh and dangerous place, but did they really have the right to change how the world works? In the back of his head Titus actually liked the idea. Change the world in a way that made everyone's lives just a little easier. After all, someone has to stand for justice in a corrupted world.

Titus opened his mind to the women and spoke with his thoughts. "You wanted a reason to come to us, I have several. But most importantly is that I may be able to provide some answers to how this happened to us. It's just a matter of opening the door in my mind. Perhaps you'd be interested in hearing what the passenger in my head has to say?"

"I was getting to that, my dear..." Cyrus, the second figure to appear at Stonehenge, began with. Valentina opened and then rolled her eyes, causing the image of Stonehenge to vanish from her mind, but her telepathic link with the two men remained and she was still listening as the man finished his statement. ".....the world is ours to shape as we choose."

"The world is ours to shape as we choose? You sound like quite the megalomaniac, dear. Perhaps I'll call you Lex Luthor." Valentina joshed. She knew her powers alone were strong enough to rain destruction on mankind, so it was completely plausible that the three of them together could "shape the world as they choose to", but she had no desire to toy with the planet to such a degree.
"You wanted a reason to come to us, I have several." said the man she now knew as Titus. "But most importantly is that I may be able to provide some answers to how this happened to us. It's just a matter of opening the door in my mind. Perhaps you'd be interested in hearing what the passenger in my head has to say?"

Image
Valentina slid into a nearby chair and crossed her legs as Titus spoke, her interest was perked but not enough to make her leave the sunny rooftop deck. "Now that's a far more tempting reason to come, getting an answer as to why my body was bestowed with powers beyond my wildest dream. However that's just one reason, you said you had several - let me know when you come up with the rest, okay?"
Even though she was speaking to them telepathically her accent still came through, and became more noticeable the longer she talked.

Before severing her telepathic connection with both Cyrus and Titus the cheeky blonde closed her eyes and once again let the image of Stonehenge form in her mind, but this time she focused hard enough to get a clear glimpse of the two men she had been speaking with.
"Goodbye...for now."


The man who had offered to pay for her breakfast was still on the phone by the time her conversation with Cyrus and Titus came to an end, but Valentina had no interest in waiting around for him, so after picking up a half eaten bagel from her plate the tall blonde would casually make her way down to the main floor and then out into the parking lot.

It was about a fifteen minute walk to the beach, and by the time she arrived her piece of bagel was gone and it was several minutes past noon.
The weather was beautiful in Sydney, what most would consider perfect beach weather. So as soon as Valentina spotted a changing cabana tent she'd step inside it. Seconds later she'd step out fully dressed in a vintage inspired polka dot two-piece, with a matching retro hairstyle and cat-eye specs. She had spotted the ensemble in a store window-front earlier in the morning and fell in love. The outfit she had previously been wearing was now inside a disposable beach bag she pulled from a dispenser inside the cabana - including her heels.

The feeling of sand underneath her bare feet was comforting as she walked towards a row of beach lounge chairs underneath umbrellas. Valentina would pull one from underneath it's umbrella shelter and move it to a more secluded section of the sand before laying down atop it and closing her eyes. The smell of the ocean was intoxicating, but even so her mind naturally wandered back to the conversation she had with Titus and Cyrus.
Valentina would sigh as her eyes opened and she stared up at the blue sky. She knew she wanted answers, and she wanted to feed her curiosity about the others like her, but she couldn't help but be stubborn.
"Summoning me to London in the middle of the night? Hah, I much rather stay here..." she whispered aloud, in a bid to convince herself she was a-okay with not getting the answers her subconscious so desperately craved.

"The world is ours to shape as we choose? You sound like quite the megalomaniac, dear. Perhaps I'll call you Lex Luthor."

"Trust me, I will not develop an unhealthy obsession with my arch-nemesis," Cy told her dryly with a small smirk. It seemed that she wasn't interested in truly doing anything drastic with her powers. That was quite a pity, he thought. He listened to her speak telepathically to them as she dismissed herself. He smiled at her accent.

"You should speak more naturally. Your voice is lovely."

With that said, he turned to the only person remaining. He raised an eyebrow, "A passenger, you say? That sounds useful... Or annoying. I'd love to meet him."
